Factory Farms and Chicken Abuse

Nicholas Kristof, a New York Times journalist and two-time Pulitzer Prize winner, has written a shocking article about how Perdue, a company which puts a “humanely raised” label on its chicken products, really raises its chickens.

Spoiler alert: it’s not humane, and it’s not pretty.  See this link for details.  It just goes to show that when it comes to buying humanely raised meats, it’s always best to do your research first.
